The 2012 World Series finally arrived in Detroit. I haven’t done a lot of baseball this year, but I was fortunate enough to cover the NLDS in Cincinnati and now the World Series. For game three I arrived around 3:00pm to find parking, pick up credentials and get all set up.
The Toledo Walleye opened their season on October 13. I worked with the Walleye marketing staff to make some awesome images of the fans waving glow sticks that were handed out to all fans when arrived at the arena.
The Toledo Musuem of Art is currently showing off the acclaimed French artist Edouard Manet, sometimes referred to as “the father of Impressionism.”
The exhibition is co-organized by TMA and the Royal Academy of Arts, London, where the show will open in late January after its run in the U.S.
A contemporary of the Impressionists, Manet (1832–1883) was the most stylish of the 19th–century French painters and a major recorder of Parisian life at that time. The exhibition is the first in depth examination of his considerable talents as a portraitist. Manet painted his family, friends and the literary, political and artistic figures of his day, often in casual settings rather than traditionally posed portraits. His subjects come to life on canvas, making the viewer curious to know more about these people and their lives.
